7th Annual 5k Walk/Hike for Mesothelioma

Worthington & Caron is pleased to announce that it will again serve as lead sponsor for the 7th Annual 5k Walk/Hike for Mesothelioma on Sunday, October 21, 2018 at the iconic old Hollywood saloon town of Paramount Ranch in Agoura Hills. The event is family and dog friendly, so bring your little ones and furry friends!

The event is hosted by The Pacific Mesothelioma Center (PMC) at the Pacific Heart, Lung & Blood Institute (PHLBI), with 100% of proceeds supporting PMC’s much-needed research for a cure for mesothelioma. To date, PMC has raised over $5 million in the campaign to fund new research in the fight against mesothelioma.

Last year’s event raised over $160,000. Since its inception, over $650,000 has been raised for mesothelioma research. With your help, we hope to raise $200,000 at this year’s event, over $53,000 has already been raised towards that goal!

“The goal of the 5K Walk for Meso began as a means to raise funds and awareness for mesothelioma and throughout the years has fostered a community," Clare Cameron, Executive Director of PMC and organizer of the event said. “The PMC walk unites this community with the knowledge that, we, the sufferers of mesothelioma friends and families, walk with them through this battle both figuratively and literally.”

Registration is $45 per person and participants will receive a t-shirt, enjoy live entertainment by The Six Billion Dollar Band, and a generous catered lunch catered by Italia’s Deli. As in years past, there will be a raffle and silent auction offering GREAT prizes!

Actor Larry Wilcox, known for his role as "Officer Jon Baker" on the hit TV show CHiPS, will return as the emcee for this year's event. Larry is a longtime supporter of PMC. He is also a former patient of PMC Scientific Advisor, Dr. Robert Cameron.

The 7th Annual Walk/Hike for Meso will take place on October 21, 2018 at the Paramount Ranch located at 2903 Cornell Road, Agoura Hills, CA 91301. Online registration is open now through Friday October 19. Day of event registration will open at 9 a.m., with the walk/hike beginning at 10 a.m. You can walk as an individual or as a member of a team.

Register today, invite friends and family, and start fundraising!
